Stephen C. Marini, MS., D.C., Ph.D.

Professor of microbiology and immunology since 1975, he is currently also involved in continuing education programs in neuro-immunology and optimum immunity. He provided Dr. Lanctot with the following statement:

"I respectfully suggest that the scientific evidence is compelling that the "No Vaccine" option is the only one which will result in no cases of vaccine associated polio... Further, this option will contribute to the overall better health of children by eliminating the dangerous interference with the natural and optimal functioning of the human immune and nervous systems which occurs whenever vaccines are used to artificially manipulate the immune system.

The rationale for this position stems from published, and unpublished scientific data and other information which provide evidence against the continued use of polio vaccines and vaccines in general:

1) Evidence supporting discontinuation of the use of oral polio vaccine (OPV):

The oral polio vaccine is produced by growing viruses on monkey tissues, rather than using human cell lines. The presence of adventitious agents, such as simian retroviruses (SV4O)... represent contaminants of such vaccines... The safety of using the live oral polio vaccine to passively vaccinate close contacts of recipients (herd immunity), has never been scientifically demonstrated, licensed or regulated even though it has been used as an official polio disease control strategy for more than three decades. There is a real question as to whether this has been scientifically irresponsible and a serious breach of public trust. Significantly, the cause of human cases of polio in the U.S. the past two decades has been attributed solely to the oral polio vaccine.

Conclusion: The use of oral polio vaccine should be discontinued.

2) Evidence supporting the discontinuation of the use of the (injected) inactivated polio vaccine (IPV):

The routine administration of this vaccine negates development of gut immunity which is essential for defense at the site of primary multiplication of the polio virus... In considering both the preparation and use of the polio virus vaccine, Dr. Jonas Salk (the vaccine’s founder) has stated: "The objective in the preparation and use of a poliomyelitis vaccine cannot include the knowing or willful acceptance of a risk that is tangible, or measurable to any degree. Any risk that is involved, so long as it is recognized, must be corrected, whatever may be its cause.

Conclusion: The use of inactivated polio vaccine should be discontinued.

3) Evidence supporting the discontinuation of the use of all vaccines:

There is historic epidemiological evidence that the incidence and severity of infectious diseases wanes in populations over time... as the human immune system naturally adapts to the challenge... Data also suggests that the diseases of childhood are necessary for appropriate development, maturation and function of the individual immune and nervous systems.... Furthermore, progress in the field of psychoneuroendocrinimmunology, has led some researchers to conclude that vaccines in general may not only be impacting negatively on the human immune system, but may also be adversely effecting the neurologic and psychologic development and function of the vaccine recipient. The impact of artificial immunity on immune, neurologic, endocrine, and psychologic systems has not been scientifically elucidated.

There is no credible scientific data to demonstrate that the injection of multiple antigens simultaneously into a baby, particularly a baby under the age of one year, is safe and effective. There is no credible scientific evidence to negate the hypothesis that vaccines cause immediate or delayed damage to the immune and nervous systems of children resulting in a rise in auto-immune and neurological disorders including asthma, learning disabilities, hyperactivity, autism, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, diabetes, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and other diseases.

There is no assurance that the agency charged with detailing and reporting adverse events following immunizations is not ethically constrained by its conflicting responsibility of promoting vaccines.

Conclusion: The universal compulsory vaccination of all healthy children should be halted.

Summary: There is growing public awareness of the significance of alternative measures, such as proper nutrition, exercise, rest, positive mental outlook and the maintaining of neurologic integrity, as powerful instruments for immunologic enhancement and defense against disease. There is increasing recognition among health care practitioners that the human body has an innate ability to protect and heal itself when allowed to function optimally without interference.

Educational conduits which target the largest number and widest socio-economic cross-sections of the public should be used to reinforce the concept that wellness is a way of life and can only be achieved by employing preventive health care strategies which enhance, not suppress or interfere with, the natural functioning of the human immune system. In recognition of the need to enhance the innate human immune capacity to resist infectious diseases such as polio, health and wellness advocates of the 21St century support the "No Vaccine" option."
